Tamson House in downtown Ottawa is a place of hidden power, for the House is a door to other lands where Celtic and native American magicks mingle and leak into our own. Magic breathes in the walls of the House, mystery sleeps in its enclosed garden.

Overview

Tamson House in downtown Ottawa is a place of hidden power, for the House is a door to other lands where Celtic and native American magicks mingle and leak into our own. Magic breathes in the walls of the House, mystery sleeps in its enclosed garden. Leylines rest beneath its foundations, and inside its rooms Weirdin discs are thrown into patterns that speak of the distant past and the shadowed future to come.

The House takes up a entire city block and yet is even larger than it seems, for rooms appear and disappear and the twisty overgrown garden paths lead to a vast and primal Wood that no city streets have ever contained. There is something dark within that Wood, threatening the existence of Tamson House and all who dwell within it. Three green children hang from a tree; a coyote man waits in the moonless dark, the Autumn Lady carries her heavy gift; shadows are lost; the Westlin Wind sings; and old spirits wake and walk between worlds.

Whether you are returning to the halls of Tamson House, or entering its doors for the very first time, prepare yourself for wonders and terrors and enchantments dark and bright, where modern characters and old spirits meet and walk between worlds, and ultimately, wage a battle that threatens the existence of Tamson House—a strange, rambling old house and haven for artists, musicians, writers and others: Blue, the biker; Emma, the Autumn Lady; Esmeralda, the Westlin Wind; and a host of other unforgettable characters.

Spiritwalk is the sequel to the classic Moonheart. This edition features a new afterword by the author.

The long-awaited sequel to Moonheart returns to those magical urban streets and to the dense forests of the fantasy world that lies just a heartbeat beyond them. Tamson house is a mysterious place in the center of modern Ottawa, with a wild garden which is actually a Gateway into a mystical Otherworld.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A rich and believable blend. [de Lint] again displays his talent for fluid cross-world fantasy.” —Library Journal

“To discover de Lint’s writing in Spiritwalk is to be lured into a compelling world of bikers, fairies, tricksters, shamans, and secret, invisible passages to other worlds.” —Edmonton Journal

“For more than a decade, Charles de Lint has enjoyed a reputation as one of the world’s leading fantasists, thanks largely to his enchanting 1984 novel Moonheart. Now, at last, de Lint re-weaves the spell in Spiritwalk, a sequel that ranks among the spring’s top releases.... Deftly and repeatedly crosses back and forth between dimensions to create a unique tone that links familiarity with compelling foreignness. Newcomers to de Lint’s work should also note that Spiritwalk is a self-contained novel that’s firmly linked to Moonheart, but can easily be enjoyed on its own.” —Toronto Star

“Deftly blends native American and Celtic folklore, classic good versus- evil conflicts, and contemporary elements with tender human moments.” —Booklist
